If you have visited this resort not too long ago, why not add your own short review to this page?
A loyal band of regular visitors just love Méribel, and it’s not difficult to see why. For keen piste-bashers who like to rack up the miles but dislike tacky post-war resorts, it’s difficult to beat: unlike other modern purpose-built resorts, Méribel has always insisted on chalet-style architecture.
Other 3V resorts have the edge in some respects. For better snow opt for Courchevel or Val Thorens. For lower prices, Les Menuires. For a more compact village and a lower concentration of Brits, go virtually anywhere.
News – this season 2012/13
The first two sections of the Plattières gondola are due to be replaced by a 10-person gondola that will cut ride time from 22 minutes to nine minutes. The lower stage of the Saulire gondola is being replaced to match the upper stage installed for last season, cutting ride time to the top from 20 minutes to 12. The Choucas restaurant near the mid-station of this gondola will be redesigned to become a new Folie Douce (like those in Val d’Isère and Val Thorens). Two pistes will be remodelled to make them easier: the bottom part of the blue run to Mottaret by the Plattières gondola and the narrow-access blue to Chaudanne.
News – last season 2011/12
The upper stage of the Saulire gondola from Méribel was replaced by a faster eight-seater. The Blanchot green run was remodelled to start at the gondola mid-station, creating a gentle run all the way to the resort.
